4 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Beautiful people here, but everyone will know if…

1 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Dating at Marlboro is hard. Some people find a good match, but there isn't a wide variety of options, gossip travels fast, and often people are too busy for a real committed relationship. There are options in terms of hooking up, but its rare to find Marlboro relationships really work out long term. There are some great exceptions, but generally the dating scene isn't students main focus, so it isn't the greatest.

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: I would say that the guys as a whole are more attractive. Nobody shaves, everybody wears greys/dark brown but the style is cool and fresh most of the time. DOn't come here expecting a good dating scene.

4 College Senior

Guys & Girls: Students at Marlboro are interested in and participating in a wide variety of things. They can party but it is not the main event. People are focused on their education.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I Hope You Like Hippies and Hipsters – There are an abundance of hipsters here, and a few genuine hippies. Everyone sleeps with everyone and nudity is welcome always.
The girls don't shave and neither do the guys. If you don't like girls with hairy pits/legs and hipsters galore, you'll hate it here.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Many of the guys at Marlboro are "Vermont, granola, crunchy, bearded-teddy-bear" hot. Many of the girls are "hippieville, vegan, I-don't-shave-a-lot" hot. But there's a diverse crowd for such a small school. There isn't the average frat house environment with a thousand beauties of both sexes. There are down-to-earth, genuine beauties at Marlboro. There are athletic people, poetic people, squeaky-clean people, not-so-clean people, hippies, horn dogs, and lots and lots of bookworms. There's a little something for everyone. Anybody you are in relationship with, you're gonna have to be willing to see a whole lot of them—literally, just turn the corner, and there they are again.

Furthermore, with 300 students, the selection here is rather limited. Additionally, it is important to note that if you're a guy who would like to experiment with other guys, or a girl who is curious about what it would be like to be with a girl, people will not judge you on your exploration. Marlboro is full of young people, so naturally, everyone is going to be attracted to and in relationships with each other sometime or another. Because dating is rather limited and a little challenging, many students find informal hookups more appealing. Though this sometimes poses a problem, most students would rather be in a committed relationship than have one night of intimacy.

Social Scene
Students are very outgoing at Marlboro College. They tend to be confident and curious about meeting new people. Some are quieter than others, but usually, when an effort is made to get to know somebody, a relationship of some kind is formed.
Hookups or Relationships?
After about the second week of school, everybody gets to know everybody, and the infamous "freshman mating season" begins. Hookups are very frequent at Marlboro, and with only about 300 students, you can see how the term "Marlboro's family tree" becomes relevant. Though informal hookups occur, there are some very committed relationships on campus (generally, that's what people go for here). Couples in long-term relationships are referred to as "Marlboro married."
Best Places to Meet Guys/Girls
Parties! There is always somewhere to be when the nights get chilly and the need to snuggle becomes unbearable. Whether at a social event, a simple get-together, or a late-night chat in the Dining Hall, you'll have plenty of opportunities to meet new hotties (remember, you live in the same village).
Dress Code
Visiting Marlboro may seem like a trip back in time. Paisley, poppies, and bandanas are all over the place (no wonder the delivery trucks that drive onto campus look at us like we're rallying hippies). But, of course, the grungy, torn, paint-covered look is only executed by some. People dress every which way here, and we're not concerned with how you look.
